Two fathers shot each other’s daughters during a road rage incident

Two Florida men, fathers, who shot each other’s daughters during a road rage incident were arrested and each charged with one count of attempted second-degree murder.

Per court filings, William Joseph Hale, 35, and Frank Gilliard Allison, 43, were both arrested on Saturday evening and booked at the Nassau County Jail.

During a press briefing on Monday, Bill Leeper, Nassau County Sheriff described the men’s behavior as “stupid” and “crazy.” On Saturday, just after 6 o’clock on U.S. 1, there was a “road rage incident” that led to numerous 911 calls alleging “people being shot,” according to Leeper.

The witness who spoke to authorities said Hale was driving a black Dodge Ram with five people inside, and Allison was driving a gray Nissan Murano with three people inside.

Leeper maintains that the witness contacted 911 because both vehicles were driving so recklessly that he thought something horrible was about to happen and that the interaction between the two vehicles was like a “cat and mouse game.”


Per Leeper, investigators were able to establish that both Hale and Allison were “speeding, driving recklessly and brake-checking each other” in the moments prior to the shootings. He defined this behavior as “getting in front of each other and applying the brakes.”

“Hale, the driver of the Dodge Ram, began yelling at Allison, the driver of the Nissan, to pull over at some point during the incident.”

“The Nissan’s right front passenger stretched her hand out the window and used her middle finger to flip the other car off. Also, a plastic water bottle was hurled from the Dodge Ram into the Nissan as its driver, Allison, rolled down his window to yell back at the other car driver.”

The Nissan’s driver, Allison, then pulled out his Sig Saur 45-caliber semi-automatic gun and fired one round at the other car before speeding away.

The 5-year-old daughter of Hale was hit in the leg as the bullet entered through the right rear passenger door of the Dodge Ram. Allison told investigators that he just wanted to “get out of the whole scenario,” which is why he fired the shot.
